Self-initiated project with the brief of developing a coherent, accessible and sensitive poetry collection.
Many of the poems were written during the poet's tumultuous adolescence and mental illness. As a result, an experimental format was used, based on that of a desk calendar. The reader must tear off and thus discard one page in order to be able to read the next. This format was selected in order to demonstrate the time of the poet's life that was 'lost' through over a decade of serious mental illness, and the often short-lived timescale of talent and beauty.
